Lunch and Learn with Kerstin Haring
11:00am - 12:00pm
Engineering & Computer Science, Room 510, Event Space
Advancements in technology have led to complex and sophisticated computerized systems advancing to the stage that they are no longer used exclusively as a tool but as system that operates like a teammate to the human user. Dr. Haring's research focuses on how introducing modern technology affects human-machine teaming. The machine team member is supporting the human in a mission through contributing the unique capabilities machines like robots, autonomous cars, fighter jets and robotic systems, and human augmentation through artificial intelligence and machine learning possess. To successfully introduce machines into human teams, the role and effect has to be evaluated from a human-centric approach including human factors and cognitive perspectives. Join us as Kerstin Haring speaks on approaches on evaluating the social status of machines within teams, compliance with robot requests, communication and teaming with autonomous robotic systems, and the influence of the form and function of robots.
